New outdoor fitness gym at The Loops at Lovers Lane

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-There’s a new way to workout at the Loops at Lovers Lane! 

Bowling Green Parks and Rec has recently installed an outdoor fitness center with equipment that uses only a person’s body weight- no machines. 

It’s actually part of a national fitness campaign. There are over 200 in the United States. 

There will be a free app users can download to guide them through seven exercises in seven minutes.

“One of the reasons why we wanted to do this location is the neighborhood next door surrounding Lovers Lane and you have the walking trail so we know that clientele will enjoy this. And soccer by nature has 1,000 people here every weekend so that will draw a lot of people. It’s just a great way to reach the community and try to bring another healthy element for us,” said BGPR Director Brent Belcher. 

It’s open to the public, but staff are still putting a few finishing touches on the equipment.
